Simple installer with JRE check

From NSIS Wiki

Author: weebib (talk, contrib)


Description

This is a not very fancy install that has one interesting feature though. It can achieve a JRE version check. Depending on the outcome of the check procedure, it will display a Window warning the user that a newer version will be installed (or the user should install it manually).

As it has been pointed out in the forum, there ought to be another solution to perform a much more thorough search for the JRE than the one achieved by the present installer.

The big effort of this install was to use an (optional) InstFile window while installing the jre.

See New installer with JRE check (includes fixes from 'Simple installer with JRE check' and missing jre.ini) for another approach.
